What happens then she asked, in a timid quiet voice,
When we reach the end of the road,
The edge of all that is,
What happens then?
Who was I to be the one to answer,
As each one of us moved through on our own,
Slinking through this life with open arms
Or fear in our eyes for what could be….
What could I say to allieviate the discord,
To banish the anxiety that could arise,
It was not my place to speak of that which I had learned
Through the tumultuous road I had travelled,
For that was my journey and not hers,
So I smiled, like any semi wise person would do,
And still she looked at me with those inquisitive eyes
And I bowed my head before her and reached out for her hand,
There, I pointed towards the future,
There is where it begins and it is there that you must walk.
She looked at me with a slight trembling fear in her eyes,
I don’t want to go there alone she said quietly.
I chuckled lightly, hearing my own words come forth from within her
And I gazed down at her and gave her a slight nudge,
I shall walk with you for but a little while,
And then you must go alone for it is a path I know well,
And for you to learn all the world has before you,
You must learn by yourself,
But fear not for I shall be watching,
You may not see me, but when you feel most afraid,
Picture me and feel peace,
See me in your mind and know I am there.
She seemed contented then and we took the first steps forward,
I lit each star on her path and lent her my light gladly.
We came to a fork in the road and she began moving on her own,
I stopped and she turned around realizing that I was to go no farther.
Thank you her eyes said and the world about her began to emit a strange glow,
She nodded once and reached for me but I had already begun my descent down below,
I smiled and gave her a wave and she gave one in return,
She was a child of the universe,
I was her star above,
She had bravery in her heart
And I was so proud to let her go,
She who would become the soul who would someday shake the foundation of all,
A piece of stardust and light thrust forth in her new home,
A star seed making her way to amazing things.
Thinking thoughts in dark times of light that is often forgotten yet much needed. Just a tale from the tippy reaches of my mind….peace, love and light to all, Kim
